Zimbabwe continues to strengthen its open business drive with revelations that the country is seized with an influx of negotiations from a number of foreign investors interested to commit their funds into a number of projects.

On the back of a growing interest by a number of foreign investors to commit their funds into the country the central bank is mooting dangling incentives for the investors as government moves to buttress its position on opening up its economy to investment.

Central bank governor Dr John Mangudya sold this position to the international community during an international interview with Bloomberg Television.

The Zimbabwe is open for business mantra has drawn interest from a number of sectors spreading across energy, infrastructure and mining translating to a cumulative investment package exceeding $16 billion achieved within the last 12 months.

The prospects of growing this portfolio are abundant as the nation benchmarks this foreign inflow with the strong growth being recorded in gold, platinum, and diamond as well as tobacco yields that have raked in substantial earnings for the country since the beginning of this year.
